You may have already seen Engadget posting reviews from our friends at The Wirecutter. Now, from time to time, we'll also be publishing their recommended deals on some of their top picks. Read on, and strike while the iron is hot -- some of these sales could expire mighty soon.

Logitech Harmony 650 Universal Remote

Street price: $65; MSRP: $90; deal price: $53

While way back in 2013 you could get it on sale for $40, it's been in the $60-$70 range since then. We have featured a couple of the deals on the Harmony 700 in the past few months that've been a similar price to this deal, and while we do like that model a little more, it's not our pick due to consistent availability issues.

The Logitech Harmony 650 is our pick for the best universal remote. John Sciacca said, "Being truly universal means supporting a vast array of brands and models. Here Harmony is unrivaled with a massive online database of more than 5,000 brands and 225,000 models virtually ensuring that any component you own will be supported. Finally, a customizable screen allows you to place buttons exactly where you need/want them. Thanks to the affordable price, comfortable design, simple software, and vast device library, the 650 is a clear winner."

DJI Phantom 3 Professional Quadcopter

Street price: $1,259; MSRP: $1,259; deal price: $1,000

We initially posted this as a deal at $1,129, but after fluctuating for a bit Amazon has knocked it down to a fantastic price at $1,000, the best deal we've seen on it.

The DJI Phantom 3 Professional is the 4K video pick in our guide on the best drones. Mike Perlman and Eric Hansen wrote, "If you want to shoot 4K video, need to quickly charge batteries to meet a hectic shooting schedule, and don't mind spending a little extra cash, the Phantom 3 Professional is worth the upgrade from the Advanced."

iClever Himbox HB01 Bluetooth Car Kit

Street price: $30; MSRP: $70; deal price: $25 with code ITK3JCA5

When you use the code ITK3JCA5 at checkout, you'll save $5 off the street price. That matches the best price we've seen on this product, and it hasn't been this low in months.

The iClever Himbox HB01 is the top pick in our guide on the best Bluetooth kits for every car stereo. Karissa Bell and Nick Guy said, "Audio quality is as good as, or better than, with any other unit we tested, and the inclusion of track-control buttons on the main unit and an extra charging port on the included power adapter are appreciated."

Fujifilm X-T10 Camera

Street price: $1,000; MSRP: $1,100; deal price: $950

This is the best price we've seen to date on this camera with the 18-55 lens kit. This is a $50 drop from our previous low, and a full $150 under the $1,100 it's been sitting at since the year started. You can also get the model with the 16-50 lens for $750, but our guide is specifically written with the quality of the 18-55 in mind.

The Fujifilm X-T10 is our better image quality, but larger, pick in our guide for the best mirrorless camera under $1,000. Amadou Diallo said, "Bulkier and more expensive than our main pick, the Fujifilm X-T10's larger APS-C sensor, paired with its higher-end 18-to-55-mm kit lens, offers the best low-light image quality you'll find in this category."
